Science and Technology is Ghana’s future – Akufo-Addo


President Nana Akufo-Addo has emphasized that the future of Ghana is very dependent on her ability to get its youth who are currently in school to secure Mastery in Science and Technology.

The President made the observation when he addressed winners of the 2019 edition of the National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) from St. Augustine’s College, Cape Coast, at the Jubilee House when they paid a courtesy call on him Tuesday 15th of October 2019.

“The centrality of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education for the future of our country has been decided on. This is where we all have to turn our energies, plans and programmes to,” President Akufo Addo said adding “All the countries that are progressing today, its all about the Mastery of Science and Technology by their populations. To have award winners in this area means we are looking at the future of Ghana”.

The President congratulated the award winners as well as the organizers and wished them well in their future endeavors.

“I want to congratulate you warmly. From my understanding, it is highly contested and very keenly contested competition so to come out of it on top, it’s a big victory to yourselves, to the School, to the science master and all of you who are involved in the preparation and teaching, you are to be congratulated,” the President noted.

Deputy Minister for Education Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum, who led the Delegation to the meeting indicated that the introduction of the free senior high school flagship programme of government essentially absorbed the fees that parents and schools paid to participate in the competition.

To this end, he noted that the National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ) has been strengthened because monies are readily available from government for the organization of the NSMQ that has become a must watch for every household in the nation.
